Changing lives of youth of greater Venice! The joys of sailing go beyond learning how to safely navigate the water on a sailboat. Youngsters 6 – 18 learn responsibility and self-reliance; they learn more about themselves and how to communicate with others; and they develop greater independence and self confidence that comes with that knowledge. Enduring friendships evolve with others their age with whom they share a love of fun on the water. And they have a skill and a sport for a lifetime – whether they sail our Bays, the Gulf, the Caribbean, or the World. "Captains of their boats" long before they can drive a car or vote. Our philosophy: "Right side up...on the water...and in life!"
